"Why Should I Grow Food?"
Fun. Pure unadulterated fun. Really. One potted tomato plant and you will be hooked for life.
Taste. Freshness. Nutrition. Because homegrown food is the ultimate in fresh, it also tastes amazing and is loaded with nutrition. Food begins to lose its nutrients the moment it is picked. Store-bought is not even the same critter.
Safety. Homegrown won't be contaminated, sprayed with toxins, GMOed or irradiated. Be your own quality control.
Cost. Slash your food bill. The water you use on landscaping can grow your food.
Energy. The average food item travels 1,500 miles to your grocery store. Pick it from your yard instead.
